More and more Filipinos are logging in at the Visita Iglesia online website by the Catholic Bishops’ Conference of the Philippines (CBCP). Likewise, many blogs have also been helping to the cause by putting up their own Visita Iglesia online articles.
Meanwhile, Msgr. Pedro Quitorio, the CBCP media director says that as they are expecting more devotees to use the Visita Iglesia online they’ve put up, they’re increasing the bandwidth and resources capacity of the site.
Visitors of the online Visita Iglesia will have a true feel of going to the pilgrimage to 14 historical and beautiful churches in Metro Manila. Accompanied by the prayers of the 14 Stations of the Cross, music and a slideshow of photos of the church, Filipino Catholic devotees, specially OFWs will have the chance to become part of this tradition even if they’re out of the country.
Some of the churches featured are the Manila Cathedral and San Agustin Church in Intramuros, Manila; Quiapo Church or the Minor Basilica of the Black Nazarene; Our Lady of Manaoag Church in Pangasinan, and the Agoo Church in La Union.
